Talitha Kum Annual Report: Discover Anti-trafficking Actions Around the World

Return to news

Talitha Kum, the global network of sisters, allies and partners created by the International Union of Superiors General (UISG), unveiled its annual report for the year 2022 earlier this summer.

This year has been marked by numerous interrelated crises, from the impact of COVID-19 to natural disasters caused by climate change, conflicts in several countries (Sri Lanka, Burkina Faso, Venezuela, Myanmar…) and the war in Ukraine. “All these crises have a direct impact on human trafficking worldwide,” said Sr. Abby Avelino, MM, Talitha Kum’s international coordinator.

“Despite the challenges we have faced, members continue to respond to Talitha Kum’s Call to Action by caring, healing, empowering and engaging in the lives of victims and survivors, as well as populations at risk of trafficking and exploitation,” she added.

Packed with data, stories, testimonies and critical analyses, the annual report provides an overview of anti-trafficking actions around the world. It is also intended as a working tool to help all those involved in the fight against human trafficking.

“Talitha Kum’s tireless and prophetic commitment to raising awareness and combating human trafficking, in synergistic collaboration with thousands of people around the world, makes its mission meaningful and relevant to the challenges of every age and reality,” says Sr Nadia Coppa, ASC, President of UISG.

Talitha Kum is a network of national, regional and continental networks. Each network retains its own identity and autonomy, while benefiting from the experience and knowledge of others through Talitha Kum’s coordinating role. Talitha Kum facilitates this sharing of resources and supports the development and training of the networks.

The annual report is available in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. An online presentation was made. The video presentation can be accessed in English and French.
